Police tape (right size)

7:48am 5th January 2015

Police appealing for witnesses after a New Years Day fight.

At 11pm on New Years Day, a group of friends were enjoying a night out in the Princess Royal Pub, Yorkshire Street, Burnley when an argument broke out and the group spilled out onto Yorkshire Street near to the Turf Hotel. 

A 22 year old student intervened  as a peacemaker and was punched to the face causing a fractured eye socket and bleeding to the rear of his eye.  The offender is described as a white male in his mid-twenties, approximately 6ft in height, stocky build with short dark hair. 

During the same incident another 22 year old man was assaulted and sustained a broken jaw.  Both males were taken to Royal Blackburn Hospital and are receiving treatment. 
 
Shortly before the two males were assaulted, two women were involved in a fight on Yorkshire Street and it is believed this incident is connected.
